An Ugly Side Of Society Has Been Unmasked, Part 7

, , , , , | Right | December 4, 2020

In my town, there is a mask mandate ordinance: customers who shop in town must wear a mask, with the exception of those who have medical conditions, or businesses may be fined. There are several signs on the door stating this.

A man walks in without a mask.

Me: “Sir, do you have a mask?”

Customer: “No, why do I gotta have one? I’m just getting one thing.”

Me: “I can’t check you out if you don’t have one on; it’s city ordinance.”

He leaves, cursing under his breath, and I assume that is the last I’ll see of him. Two hours later, my coworker tells me that the next gentleman in line has a medical condition that prohibits him wearing a mask. Even if he doesn’t have a condition, we aren’t allowed to inquire further and are just supposed to let them through, so that’s what I do. It just so happens that the man from before comes back as I am ringing this customer up and immediately becomes enraged. 

Customer: “Oh, so you just let him through because he’s white? I see how it is, racist f***!”

Me: “No, he has a medical condition and we can’t force people who say that to wear a mask.”

Customer: *Yelling* “Oh? Well, I gotta condition, too! That’s mad disrespectful to me!”

Me: “You didn’t state that you had a condition. I wouldn’t have made you put a mask on had you said something.”

I’m getting agitated because he’s screaming that I’m a racist across the store.

Coworker: “Sir, she just followed what we were told to do—”

Customer: *Cuts her off* “This doesn’t concern you.”

He turns back and continues to yell at me. I’m doing my best to get him to leave while helping other customers since we’re busy and understaffed.

Me: “Sir, I already said that if you had mentioned you had a condition, I would have let you through!”

I yell over him, completely pissed off at this point, before turning away to continue working.

Customer: “Yeah, all right, I see you.”

He slammed open the door and walked out. My coworkers did their best to calm me down since I was shaking and furious at being screamed at in front of a dozen other customers. Please don’t verbally assault us for having to enforce the rules that the city put into place! We don’t like it any more than you do.
